EU Taxonomy for sustainable activities – incentivising Europe’s enablers of the green transition

The European Green Deal sets very ambitious goals- reaching climate neutrality by 2050 and environmental sustainability- which require a substantial amount of financing. The EU Taxonomy aims to help redirecting private finance towards sustainable activities, technologies and projects that underpin Europe’s goals. To do so, it provides a framework to classify which economic activities are sustainable by setting technical criteria. 

This event will provide a timely discussion about the development of this important regulation, while addressing key concerns that can impact the success of its implementation. How to make sure that relevant activities contributing to the green transformation are in the scope of the EU Taxonomy delegated acts? And how to ensure that taxonomy criteria are easily applicable, while avoiding greenwashing in the financial market?
